The current study focuses on a sub-urban sector of the historical centre of Sant’Antimo, placed in the province of Naples (Italy), in order to estimate the expected damage scenario due to earthquakes by using a probabilistic approach. First, aiming at performing an exposure analysis, the typological and structural characterization of buildings within the urban sector has been done with the purpose to redact the CARTIS form, which was developed by the PLINIVS research centre in cooperation with the Italian Civil Protection Department in the framework of the ReLUIS research project. Subsequently, the vulnerability form developed by the first Author has been used for the vulnerability assessment of the study area. Furthermore, the typological fragility curves, according to the EMS-98 scale, have been derived for the building stocks located in the sub-urban sector. Finally, the probabilistic approach for the urban risk evaluation has been applied in order to derive the damage scenario for a set of different magnitudes and site-source distances.
